How the Web and the Weblog have changed Writing. I saw this on Gordon Meyer's blog. It talks about how blogs and web publishing have provided venues for texts that, due to incorrect page length, wouldn't have otherwise been published.

Length (either too long or too short)  is no longer a deterrent to publishing.
